Get Up and Stand Up for Comedy
BY BRYAN LUIS // FEB. 6, 2013 //
If you’re struggling to find something entertaining to do on campus this Saturday night, and you like comedy, the Miller Field House is the place to be.
Starting at 7 p.m., stand-up comedian Josh Wolf will perform live. Tickets are $5 and will be sold at the door. Curry’s own Steve Nicholson, a senior communication major, is the opening act. Student Entertainment and Events (SEE) is hosting the show.
Wolf isn’t your average small-school standup comedian; he has actually done some high-profile work. Wolf has appeared on the TV shows “Raising Hope,” “My Name is Earl,” “All of Us,” “Chelsea Lately,” and “After Lately.” In addition to appearing in three episodes of “Raising Hope,” he also wrote an episode.
Wolf has bounced around over the years like many entertainers do. He has been a spokesman for Microsoft, performed a one-man show at HBO Workplace, and qualified as a finalist on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing”; he lost to Theo Von.
An interesting fact for all you 1990’s TV junkies, like myself, is that Wolf is cousin to Scott Wolf, the actor who played younger brother Bailey Salinger on “Party of Five.” On the show, Bailey dated Sarah, played by Jennifer Love Hewitt.
So if you are looking for an inexpensive way to have fun on campus, you should check out this show. Nicholson will be a riot, as usual, and Wolf is sure to put on a terrific performance.
